It's proably not a "balance" issue, there isn't much to get out of balance.
There could be a centering spring broken.
With the washer off, try pushing the basket front to back and side to side.
If it doesn't return towards center evenly from all directions, start
looking for a broken spring.
Make sure it is level. Check the inside (usually through the back) for broken,
worn or missing springs or friction devices/pads. It's possible that some
clothing item got stuck under the agitator or under the washing tub.
1) See if it's level
2) sometimes the rubber suports come undone under the basket. I've seen this
once. Had to tip the washing machine back, and reach under to put it back
together. It had been run overloaded, which caused the problem.

Sometimes this is intentional. Young lovers will intentionally put in a
rug, then wait for the spin cycle. The girl sits on top of the washer
Need I say more?
I'd give it a good hosing down, too.
